One-Time Fee for New Clients

The Signature Package is perfect for most clients, both new-to-cruising and veteran luxury cruise travelers. My service is for luxury cruises with price points starting at approximately $10,000 per couple or $7,000 per solo traveler.

The Signature Package includes the planning and booking services you need for an exceptional, professionally guided luxury cruise experience from start to finish, whether you already know exactly what you want and are ready to book, or would like help choosing your ship, itinerary, and cruise details.

I welcome new clients. For first time Bluetail Travel clients, your one-time fee covers a consultation about your travel style and goals, the creation of your personal traveler profile(s), research of your ideal cruise line, ship, and itinerary, presentation of your tailored proposal with options, professional booking of your selected cruise, plus all of the Signature Package services and perks outlined in the section below ("Details of the Signature Package").

For your future cruise reservations, or for friends and family joining existing clients on a cruise, my planning fee for the Essentials Package is typically waived.

See below for details of the Essentials Package.
